Bikes & Beers cycling tour

This Saturday, October 20, 2012 is our final Bikes & Beers cycling tour of the season!

Join us as we go on a leisurely ride throughout Windsor sampling some great brews and even better food at local establishments.

On this tour we’ll be visiting:

  • Sweet T’s Soul Cookin‘ – we’ll have a nice glass of Mill Street Organic as we get to sample the dish that is making Sweet T’s famous: Waffles and Fried Chicken. We’ll even get to go in the back and check out their original smoker from when it was originally Smoke N Spice. Best part of the visit is the pure maple syrup you’re given to pour on the waffles and chicken as it’s placed in the smoker to give it an unreal flavour. I could seriously order shots of that stuff.
  • Motor Burger – After getting revved up on smoked maple syrup, we’ll zip on over to one of Windsor’s most popular restaurants and sample some of their in-house brewed beers. If you remember, Motor Burger made waves a couple months ago for creating Deja Blue, a blueberry lavender beer. We’ll also get to sample a burger and see for ourselves why Readers Digest named one of their burgers as one of the best in Canada.
  • Rock Bottom – As our final stop we’ll visit an icon in Windsor’s west end. We’ll sample a few of the 30 beers Rock Bottom has on tap while being served a smorgasbord of goodies to munch on.

Tickets for the ride are $60 per person and are definitely worth the price. The tour ends at Rock Bottom allowing you to stay for dinner and a few more pints if you like. All others can follow us back to the starting point.

Riding distance is short as it will take only 9km of riding to get to Rock Bottom. If you decide to ride back with us to the start point, total distance is only 16km total so it’s definitely a doable ride with stops scattered throughout.

Tickets can be purchased here.

If you’re really interested in making it a day dedicated to cycling and fun, earlier that morning WindsorEats will be participating in the Kingsville Migration Parade. Our ‘float’ will be The Migration of Bikes as we’re encouraging anyone and everyone of all ages to hop on their bikes and be a part of the parade with us. We’ll have hot chocolate for you to say thanks and keep you warm!

The parade will be lining up on Queen Street this year. We ask everyone wanting to join us to go to the corner of Melbourne Street and Queen Street for 9:30am and look for the WindsorEats-mobile: a black Chevy HHR with a big red fork on the side of it.

The parade will proceed East on Main Street and disperse onto Jasperson Lane around noon.
